The annual golf competition between the Connecticut Triumph Club and the Connecticut MG Club was held on Sunday, August 12, 2018 at the world renowned Farmington Miniature Golf Course and Ice Cream Parlor. The weather was threatening, but we were able to complete the championship round without any rain.
We had a total of 10 golfers – six from the Triumph Club and 4 from the MG Club. The MG club was represented by Phil, Pat, Matt and John. The Triumph Club was represented by Neville, Susan, Sam, Kimberly, Jay and Linda. Sam and Kimberly’s son Conner and daughter Madelyn joined us for golfing. There were 4 British cars, 3 Triumphs and 1 MG, that made the journey to the golf course.

The competition between the clubs was fierce. There were some great shots and also some not so great shots, over the course of the competition. Most of the golfers were able to keep the ball on the hole they were golfing. I don’t think anyone lost a ball this year, which is an improvement from some previous years.
At the end of the round, the scores were tabulated to a high degree of precision. The four MG golfers averaged 57.5, ranging from 50 to 62. The six Triumph golfers averaged 54.67, ranging from 50 to 57. Phil, from the MG club, and Kimberly from CTR, tied for the low score of 50. There were five hole in one’s shot. Kimberly, Linda, Pam, Neville and John each had a hole in one.
After we finished golfing, we went to Jay and Linda’s house for hamburgers and hotdogs. Their house wasn’t far from the course and the drive to the house was over a nice twisty section of Old Farms Road. Overall, it was a good day for golf, driving our British cars and fun with friends.
